Now, while the rest of the information is pretty much in line with past rumors and revelations, the listing also hints at a mysterious product called ‘Google Clips’. Listed under ‘computer accessory’ category, it is unclear as to what this could be. Reports suggest that it could be an add-on accessory such as a 360-degree camera.
